▶ Topic :In a study of reading habits of Leeville citizens conducted by the University of Leeville, most respondents said they preferred literary classics as reading material. However, a follow-up study conducted by the same researchers found that the type of book most frequently checked out of each of the public libraries in Leeville was the mystery novel. Therefore, it can be concluded that the respondents in the first study had misrepresented their reading habits.

▶ Your Answer :

In the given article, the author asserts that the study which is conducted first is mispresented because the survey result is different from second survey, and shows final conclusion that Waymarsh’s resident prefer to mystery books. It seems true, however, unclear evidence which cannot take for granted is indicated thus the author need to suggest more reliable sources in support.

           To begin with, the author suggests two surveys but it is questionable about the study’s validity. First, the author does not indicate the entire sample population, and place where the survey conducted in first study. Generally speaking, to draw reliable conclusion, sufficient population is are required. Furthermore, different survey place indicates that it might be draw different survey result. In other words, some town might have more senior people and others have more children and students. It means that different age might influence on the study result. Secondly, the author overlooks about applying similar scope of survey because participant’s age and region is not similar. Lastly, if the time gap is too big between two surveys, the result of these study might not be credible since the population composition might be changed by inflow or outflow of people. Thus, additional data as I mentioned above is required to verify the author’s argument.

           Furthermore, it is questionable that only participants in public library indicate representativeness of the study. Usually, public library is closed at 6:00 PM. For example, working people might be difficult to access the public library because they can access after 6:00 PM. It is possible that only those who is available to the public library are participated in the survey. Unless the author prove the survey’s representativeness, the argumentation is remained untruth.

           Even if the two surveys have respondent’s similar scope and representativeness is proved, the author does not consider the reader’s preference. If when second survey is conducted, movie which is relative with mystery genre is released, people might find mystery books more than others. In addition, if some school book list include mystery books more other than, student might prefer to mystery books. Therefore, complete data pertaining to preference is required to prove the assertion.

           In sum, to verify the author’s argumentation, additional data pertaining to survey’s validity, representativeness, and resident’s book preference is required.
